Evil Dead: The game is already exploding sales counters

In just a few days, the game will be up and running Evil Dead: The Game Sales records broken – against all odds.

Against almost all odds, Evil Dead: The Game turned out to be a pleasant surprise (especially in multiplayer mode), despite technical flaws and fairly light content. We expected the title to delight fans of Sam Raimi’s license with the key to honest appreciation success, but no more. And we couldn’t have been more wrong, because the game from the Americans Saber Interactive (MudRunner, World War Z) managed to bring the license back to life evil Deadand fans (and others) followed in droves.

In fact, on May 19, 2022, after just five days of operation, the developers announced that their youngest had reached the impressive figure of 500,000 sales, all game media combined. Information quickly shared by Embracer Group, which acquired the Saber Interactive studio in February 2020.

“Saber Interactive revealed that Evil Dead: The Game sold over 500,000 copies in the first five days after release.”

The score announced by Saber Interactive is all the more impressive given that even major video game war machines don’t boast such a feat. It took over a year Resident Evil Village Passing the milestone of 6 million sales across all media, knowing that Capcom’s title had reached 500,000 sales in three weeks from its launch on Steam. For comparison according to SteamDBthe PC version of Rise of the Monster Hunters had only reached 500,000 sales in three weeks and sold millions of copies five months after its launch.

To see a more impressive launch than that of“Evil Dead: The Gameyou need to watch AAA blockbusters like The Untouchable elden ring and its millions of sales on PC in less than a week (and its stratospheric 13.4 million soft sales in a month on consoles and PC), or LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga (3 million sales, all media combined, in one month).

Ash, the new king of multiplayer gaming

With its simple but effective concept of an asymmetric horror game in which four players embody heroes (from the movie saga evil Dead and series Ash vs Evil Dead) to fight a fifth bearing a demon of Kandar, Evil Dead: The Game was able to convince the public. The reasons for this success? A huge dose of fun for a very accessible game and wrapped in fan service, zombie-stuffed spring rolls.

Beyond the game success evil Dead, and the pride of the developers of Saber Interactive, Embracer Group confirms that they had a hollow nose when they bought the American studio Saber. Recall that Embracer Group recently made headlines by buying Square Enix’s western studios: Eidos, Crystal Dynamics, and Square Enix Montreal. Embracer put itself in the pocket of cult franchises such as Tomb Raider, Deus EX: Human Revolution or inheritance from Cain.

The success ofEvil Dead: The Game should enable Saber Interactive to keep the game free for months to come (or even years if success is confirmed), by providing more single and multiplayer content. A new solo mission is already expected in the coming weeks. As far as multiplayer is concerned, we can expect to receive new maps and cosmetic content for the heroes before the end of the year.

Especially single players keep their fingers crossed that a solo campaign worthy of the name will finally appear, because the tutorial and the five solo missions currently available for the title are very meager. Luckily, several people enjoy the software enough to make up for this minor pitfall.

Evil Dead: The Game is available since May 13, 2022 on PC via the Epic Games Store, PS5, PS4, Xbox Series and Xbox One. The Nintendo Switch version will be released later this year.

And don’t forget: a movie Evil Dead: Ascension will be there soon.
